VPN suddenly stopped working - Zentyal 6.0
« on: September 03, 2022, 09:01:34 pm »
Hello,

It happened to me before, it happened again.  Out of the blue, without touching, editing or in any way changing anything, my VPN stopped working.  The client (any client) does not connect.  The message I get on the client side is "Sat Sep 03 21:34:14 2022 MANAGEMENT: >STATE:1662230054,WAIT,,,,,,"

Last time it happened was on Zentyal 5.0, spent a few weeks troubleshooting, in the end I just made a fresh 6.0 installation and everything worked fine.

Has anybody else had a similar issue, to guide me through it?

Thanks

Hi,

Unfortunately, yes, I had a similar issue with OpenVPN module. My issue was caused by the 'expiration' of the CRL, and because of that, the VPN connection did not work. The message was the following:

Code: [Select]
Sun May  3 12:11:13 2020 41.56.2.24:60271 VERIFY ERROR: depth=0, error=CRL has expired: C=ZA, ST=Free

Basically, I have to do something with any certificate in thirty days max such as create or remove a certificate, otherwise, a VPN connection may stop working.

Thanks for the response.  So, basically, if you reinstall the certificate will everything work again?

Hi,

No, really. You just need to create a dummy certificate so the CRL file is updated. Once you did that, the issue should be fixed for now. However, it will happen again if in 30 days you do not perform any action with some certificate, so the CRL will expire again.
